Welcome - Home Page
Training for the Cross (TFTC) is a non-profit organization focused on producing successful students through producing solid ranch and arena horse prospects. We concentrate on giving our students not only the knowledge and skills to be successful in the equine industry, but also a foundation to be successful in life.
We accept donations for scholarships and improvements to the program, but instead of giving students a handout, we believe in giving students a hand-up. We believe in helping students gain one of the greatest characteristics that America was founded on (and is sadly being lost in much of today’s society), a solid work ethic.
Through TFTC’s horse training and marketing services, our goal is to help financially support young people who demonstrate a good work ethic, a desire to succeed, and a heart to make America and this world a better place for generations to come, obtain an education. For more information on the mission and vision of TFTC read True Science Leading to True Students, and for more information on how you can become a TFTC "booster" through using one of our services, look at our Ropes 4 Hire, Colt Starting, Foundation to Finish, or Marketing pages.
